Publisher's Summary

Listeners eagerly await the latest from Beverly Lewis, the #1 name in Amish Fiction.

With her love for all things old-fashioned, Jennifer Burns has often been told that she's an "old soul," but no one is prepared for the young woman's decision to set aside her modern life in favor of the Old Order Amish world. Yet Jenny does exactly that, adopting Plain dress and settling in with Samuel and Rebecca Lapp while she works as a mother's helper for the bishop's wife - a far cry from her former job as an x-ray technician. The people of Hickory Hollow are curious about the beautiful young seeker among them, one handsome Amish man in particular. But he is not the only man vying for Jenny's affections, and Jenny faces many challenges in the Proving time the brethren have set for her...challenges of the heart, as well as the spirit. Will Jenny's secrets keep her from the peace she longs for? Or will they lead the way home?

Suspense

When I got to audible chapter 38 I had to skip to the epilogue due to the suspense. Needless to say there was a lot more suspense after chapter 38!!!! Spoiler alert - happy ending! A lot of things to think about comparing Amish to Englisher ways. Great story!

I loved it

Would you consider the audio edition of The Secret Keeper to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, but I can honestly say that the audio edition held my attention all the way through and left me wanting more.

What did you like best about this story?

This story was interesting from the beginning to the end. There were no parts I wanted to skip. Every character was interesting too.

Which scene was your favorite?

The end.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I didn't feel like crying at any time- but I laughed several times. I guess several scenes "moved" me - but not one particular scene.

Any additional comments?

It's a very good, clean romance story. The realistic problems and solutions regarding relationships with God, family members, church members, community, friends, and couples made the story great.
